Donations of 2009 - Haiti Environmental Programs


Haiti has suffered for decades from uncontrolled environmental degradation, which has resulted in severe rates of soil erosion, cyclone impact, tree cover loss, and species' stress. Amurt Haiti has consistently followed a development strategy of environmental restoration in the area of Anse Rouge through community empowerment and education.

Zirak s.r.l. with EasyTrails GPS, PhotoGallery, DocumentScanner and Autovelox Plus is helping Amurt Haiti to implement:

  • community tree nurseries,
  • development of a sustainable agriculture demonstration site in the village of Ti Place,
  • environmental educations programs in the local communities, focusing on alternative technologies.

Thank to your help, Amurt Haiti can continue their work in the field!

How it works?


Every time a user purchase an iPhone's software, one part remains at Apple, while the remaining is given to the Software House who did it.

Zirak s.r.l. committed to donate 10% of its revenues to non-profit entities of small dimensions in the whole world, that are working to implement environmental sustainability projects. The choice of the association will be meticulous and will make use of international partners (istitutions that are not receiving money for this service) that will moreover verify that 100% of the donation will benefit the project, without losing money “on the way”, as always is happening in donations to bigger dimension projects.

Can I donate indipendently?


Yes: in a short time a PayPal account will be opened to receive donations of small amounts without paying high commissions; the amount will be added to the monthly donations and the donor will be kept informed about the single financed project or of the entire micro-funding project.

Why micro-donations instead of a single project?


As it's happening in the micro-credit, the funding with small amounts of money allows the development of small size projects, that are usually excluded from traditional funding entities.

Official statistics shows that success in reduced dimension projects is much higher than in big projects, where a considerable part of the investment is lost in bureaucracy, structure management, and costs not directly connected with the pursued aim. On the other side, in small scale projects, the presence of active volunteers, the need of smaller fundings to implement actions, and the smaller amounts of money involved prevents potential temptations for improper money usage.
